Thirty-one (French Trente et un) is a gambling card game played by two to seven people, where players attempt to assemble a hand which totals 31. Such a goal has formed the whole or part of various games like Commerce, Cribbage, Trentuno, and Wit and Reason since the 15th century.

The game is also known as Big Tonka, Nickel Nock, Blitz, Clinker, Klinker, Skat, Cadillac in south Louisiana and Mississippi, Cad in Pennsylvania, Whammy! in central Indiana, and as Skedaddle, Snip Snap Snoop, Schnautz and Schnitzel in other countries.

The object is to obtain a hand with a value total as close as possible to 31, from which the name of the game is taken.
